"Games" as written by and Taylor/jonas/jonas/jonas Ii/garbowsky/noyes....
I'm waiting for you right outside
The place we first locked eyes
I feel like we're both losing sight
We don't get to do this twice
And I wonder

Will you care
When I'm gone
And it's time
And I've really had enough
And I'm sorry
For the trouble
Thats been costing us so much
Splitting apart, it's getting harder to tell what you want
So bored with these games, games

The last time that I left these steps
Was after our first kiss
I wonder why you haven't shown
I'll be leaving here alone
And I wonder

Will you care
When I'm gone
And it's time
And I've really had enough
And I'm sorry
For the trouble
Thats been costing us so much
Splitting apart, it's getting harder to tell what you want
So bored with these games, games

I'm left in the dark
I never thought you would be breaking my heart
I'm so bored with these games, games

Will you care
When I'm gone
And it's time
And I've really had enough
And I'm sorry
For the trouble
Thats been costing us so much
Splitting apart, it's getting harder to tell what you want
So bored with these games, games

Games, Games, Games

    General CommentWell, when I first heard this, I thought it was about a girl playing games with their heads- does she really like him or is it just a trick?
    Then I saw a video on youtube with them explaining it and it's what MANDYxLOVESxJB said- a reference to boards games-
    "We don't get to do this twice" meaning you don't get a do-over while playing board games
    "That's been costing us so much" I think this refers to Monopoly, with how much you spend in th game, buying places and paying for landing on already owned spots
    I've heard there are a lot of board game references but these are the only ones I've been able to find.

    General CommentLike both MANDYxLOVESxJB and nightsky13 said there are multiple references to board games when you listen to the song, but to someone who doesn't think about it the song may seem about a girl who plays with a guys head all te time (which was an intentional form of misdirection)

    General CommentI can't seem to find any more puns either...I think "splitting apart" is one but I'm not exactly sure...perhaps an Operaton pun? I'm not much of a board game fanatic so I'm not sure.

    I think it's also about someone who is competitive. "Will you care when I'm gone" is like "Will you show me any sympathy when you knock me out of game, or are you so competitive you'll be happy?" "And it's done" is like "Will you say 'good game, I had fun' when it's over or will you be all about the winning?" and "I've really had enough" is like "Will you take into consideration that I don't like it when you flaunt my loss in my face and I tell you to stop?" I'm not exactly sure, but after some thinking that's the impression I get.
